Jeremy Jordan and Eva Noblezada Set To Star In THE GREAT GATSBY On Broadway This Spring
Where’s the party, and can you take me there? Today it was announced the new musical adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby will open on Broadway starring Jeremy Jordan and Eva Noblezada. Performances will begin Friday, March 29, 2024, with an official opening night set for Thursday, April 25 at the Broadway Theatre.
After a sold out run at Paper Mill Playhouse last fall, the show features music and lyrics from Nathan Tysen and Jason Howland, a book by Kait Kerrigan, and is staged by director Marc Bruni and choreographer Dominique Kelly.
Additional casting will be announced soon.
“I am passionate about producing this show because it provides a modern audience with the true essence of idealism that is expressed eloquently in the novel and now on stage. The Great Gatsby is a masterpiece that grows and changes as it’s experienced by each new generation, in every culture, and people — and yet, still maintains its uniqueness, with its fascinating characters that burst with vitality. The entire team behind The Great Gatsby is beyond thrilled to present this timeless, glamourous, and resplendent production on Broadway — that is becoming even more refined, resonant, and expressive, following our world premiere production,” said Chunsoon Shin, lead producer of the production.
Transporting audiences to the lavish Roaring Twenties, the story follows eccentric and mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby, who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of the lost love of his youth, Daisy Buchanan. Through its fascinatingly nuanced characters, driven by complex inner lives erupting with extravagance and longing – this epic tale has always been destined to sing. Now, it finally comes to life on the greatest American stage, through an electrifying jazz and pop-infused score, and a grand production befitting the 21st century.
The Broadway premiere of The Great Gatsby will feature scenic & projection design by Paul Tate de Poo III, costume design by Tony Award winner Linda Cho, lighting design by Cory Pattak, sound design by Tony Award winner Brian Ronan, hair & wig design by Charles G. LaPointe & Rachael Geier. Arrangements are by Jason Howland, Orchestrations are by Jason Howland and Kim Scharnberg, the Music Director is Daniel Edmonds, and the music producer is Grammy Award winner Billy Jay Stein for Strike Audio.
